Brooky Posted August 26, 2012 Share Posted August 26, 2012 About 10 years ago a friend flew me into a lake that left a huge impact on me. Not only was the fishing great, but the lake itself was a gem. Quite frankly, it was the most beautiful lake that I've ever seen. Turquoise blue green water made it seem like you were fishing in Hawaii. You could easily see bottom down 50 feet. In fact my buddy flew another friend into this lake a few years back and the depth finder was reading 45 feet. The friend informed him that his depth finder was not working. It's not 45 feet here. But indeed it was. Somehow this crystal clear water made 50 feet look like 20. It's been on my bucket list to get back there ever since. Last weekend I got to cross that return adventure off of my list. A short 8 mile ride from our camp site to the lake with another buddy flying solo off of our wing. Our approach gave me this awesome view of paradise. Heading out fishing. The green water in this shot is probably 30 to 40 feet deep. The trees at the far end are the length of the lake. Barely enough room to take off with the plane. My pilot buddies were concerned about getting off of the lake with the wind direction. All you have to do to catch fish here is drop any kind of lure to the bottom. Within a few minutes you'll have a Lake Trout on. Most fish are on the small side. 2 to 3 lbs. But occasionally you'll latch on to a cannibal. That's a fish that gets big enough to feed on it's own kind and can grow to monsterous proportions. Our biggest fish this trip was about 12 lbs. And I had a fish on that I couldn't budge off of the bottom before it spit my barbless hook. My last time here we caught a couple of mid to high teen weight fish. I love this lake so much that I just might put it back on my bucket list. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
